Also located in the neighborhood is the Carolina Ballet, operating for over 20 years and receiving both national and international praise. The ballet is funded by a multi-million dollar budget, employing 38 dancers in 8 programs per season in works by legendary masters and contemporary choreographers. The Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, also known as CAM, is an ever-changing curated experience of contemporary art and design housed in a 1910 warehouse in downtown Raleigh.

For a relaxing opportunity to take your mind off the pace of the city, check out the Umstead Hotel and Spa located in nearby Cary.
